This innovative full-time foundation degree offers students the opportunity to not only study for a degree also the opportunity to work towards a professional accounting qualification with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). This course also offers students the opportunity to gain invaluable work experience within an accounting environment of at least 400 hours over the two years.

The programme content has been designed in collaboration with local employers to meet their knowledge and skills requirements. The programme fully integrates work-based learning with academic study. Accounting subjects include Principles of Accounting, Ethics, Corporate Governance and Business Law, Financial Accounting and Management Accounting. Students will develop a high level of business and accounting expertise whilst learning how to research, analyse, and synthesise information in order to identify and solve problems.

Warwickshire College was granted Foundation degree awarding powers by Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council in September 2014 reflecting the very high confidence placed in us by independent higher education assessors after a year-long detailed scrutiny. FdA Business and Accounting is one of the first of our new awards following a successful approval during 2015.
